Ducati MHR1000 Mike Hailwood Mille Replica Series 3 Brand New/Old stock
THE BIKE SPECIALISTS, TRADING STANDARDS AWARD WINNERS. Here we have for sale, new in at the Bike Specialists, another excellent investment opportunity. A limited edition original Mike Hailwood Mille Replica Series 3. Just 25 examples were produced and our bike is number 18 and is supplied with a certificate of authenticity as well as various paperwork including original registration documents. The bike is totally original and has never been used or registered in the UK having been kept stored in collections firstly in Denmark and then Holland before being brought to the UK by its last owner. After Mike Hailwood�s spectacular victory at the 1978 Isle of Man Formula One race on an NCR Ducati, the factory commemorated this event with the introduction of a race replica. This bike from 1979 was originally titled �900 Replica� and became known as the Mk1 later on. The 1979 model was only produced in a number of 300. The 1980 Mk2 was not limited in production and was more or less the same as the 1979 Mk1. The Mike Hailwood Replica�s of 1981 and beyond are in many ways very different to that of the 1979/1980 models. The �Mike Hailwood Replica� as the model was now called featured a two-piece fairing, regular Brembo brake callipers and Silentium exhaust mufflers. The 1981 Mk3 was the first MHR to include side panels to hide the battery. The final bevel drive Ducati was the 1000 'Mille' Mike Hailwood Replica of 1984 that was available throughout 1986. Apart from the increased engine displacement, the engine now had forged one-piece crankshaft. This is a superb ultra rare example of the legendary MHR would be a fantastic addition to any serious collection.
